Texty Focal Point

Sometimes a stamp with a simple phrase is all the text you need — the saying becomes the focal point. How cute is this stamp from Inkadinkado? They have a bunch of these Kid Quotes that are so adorable. text-bowl-of-peas

The green paper was put through a Cuttlebug swirl folder, then sanded to create the white highlights; the flowers are from Prima; the gems from Hero Arts.

Texty Dry Embossing

To finish up the texty theme, here is one more card using another type of “text.”


I am now obsessed with embossing folders – I love the texture. This Cuttlebug folder was perfect for my “text” article. The butterflies (Stampington & Co) were stamped in purple ink on gray paper, cut out and affixed using pop dots. (You may not be able to see the subtle writing on the butterflies.) The saying is from Hero Arts.

Texty Tags


Continuing with the text theme….

What news reporter wouldn’t love this newspaper collage from Stampers Anonymous? For these fast tags, I simply stamped in black on white tags and edged with a black marker. White emboss the writing (Crafty Individuals) on a black scrap and punch out some flowers. (I used Floriana by McGill). Black emboss the writing on a white scrap and punch out smaller flowers (McGill.) Then just add the ribbon, flowers and gemstone.
